mouse gimmick to win elections without having to win with the most number of votes. rebel all of those cuts and the effort to make it harder for people to vote, all of that targeting to vote in ways that people don't like voting? well, now they're trying something new. they don't like states like pennsylvania that regularly vote democratic. so some kwauk thougquack thaugo to give the rural votes more power. their decided to kill the power of how the real state goes overall. if they can't get people to vote for them, they try to kill the power of those who don't. will they get away with it? not if you stay tuned and keep an eye on these little buggers. they've got their mickey mouse ears on. "politics nation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris. and thanks to you for tuning in. tonight's lead, president obama won. this president has no time to waste and he's using it to push for change on gun control, on immigration, on climate change, on ending the ban on women serving in combat. he's got a full agenda. and it was on full display today. remember all of that bluster from
's nominations today a perfect example of how elections have consequences? >> well, sitting where i'm sitting, not in the clint eastwood chair, i would say yes, it certainly does. it's a case of continuing a very tough policy of enforcement at the sec. so the president is sending a signal that at least in this area of regulation enforcement, he's not going to be backing down at all. surely, that's exactly what wall street and corporate america expected when he won that election. >> and that was the way he campaigned. in many ways, we're looking at, joan, him continuing the path that he campaign ds oed on, gots on and won. look at the poll on rights for gay people, 60%. on aid to the poor, 59%, on tax levels for millionaires and big corporation, 59%. women's issue, 55%. immigration, 55%. i mean, these are high numbers of people feeling the gop is out of touch on these issues. >> yeah, i mean, reverend al, the shocking thing is, as you just laid out, the support for democratic policies is even h h higher than support for democratic politicians. the president won a decisive victory, but the sup
elections. he was asked if the president has met his expectations during the first term. >> he has seen the economy come up again, and the employment -- unemployment rate is still too high but i think this will improve. we're out of iraq and we are changing our policy in afghanistan, and osama bin laden is dead. the president has made a commitment to education and he is running with a 52% approval rate, and this is a good start for a second term. >> what about the critics of the president to say that the deficit has grown and he has not put his weight behind climate change. in his first address, he mentioned climate change three times. and there are still problems in the country and the criticism -- is that he has given a fabulous speech but has not followed through. >> i think some of the criticism is fair but you have to also talk about his initial priorities or challenges. he is really committed to doing something about this in the second term. the deficit is one of the most difficult issues and the president -- he does not sign the appropriation bills until they are passed by congre
elections of lower saxony is busy choosing their parliament and the result is looking extremely close. it is being seen as a dress rehearsal for several elections in september and a verdict on chancellor angela merkel herself. david mcalester represents her party and is close to her. the poll suggests is neck-and- neck with the opposition social democrats and the green party. with go live now to hand over. what is the latest you are hearing there? >> the latest we are hearing is that it's going to be a long night. we will have to wait for the regional polling stations to be counted. the parties are really neck-and- neck and it could be angela merkel's christian democratic union or it could be the greens and social democrats. this is a bellwether region. this has farmers, big industry, europe's biggest automaker, volkswagen is located here. the religious split is catholic and protestant. what happens here is will what happened across the country generally speaking. that is why angela merkel made seven campaign stops here along with david mcallister, the christian democratic premier in
east. but because of elections, elections, today governments across the middle east in egypt, tunisia, libya, pal stipe, turkey, iraq -- palestine, turkey, iraq, they are all pursuing at least, at least independent foreign policies which are by definition much less enthusiastic about strategic cooperation with the united states and much more open to the islamic republic of iran. simply put, today the united states is in a profoundly weaker position in the middle east, and the islamic republic of rapp is in a significantly -- of iran is in a significantly stronger position. that has essentially happened because there has been a dramatic shift in the middle east balance of power. in our book, "going to tehran," we describe how part of why this shift has and is occurring is because of mistakes in american policies in the middle east. but we also describe in our book that part of what is going on is something vastly upside appreciated in -- underappreciated in the west which are the successes of the islamic republic of iran which are also driving the shift in the regional balance of power
at the numbers. 55 democrats, 45 republicans currently. in 2014, 33 seats will be up for re-election. don't go the way of general elections. congressman frost what do you think is going to happen? >> well, first of all, this is a subject i know a fair amount about. i was chairman of the democratic congressional campaign committee in 1998, the last time you had the so-called six year itch when the president's party is supposed to lose seats in the sixth year of the president's term. we actually picked up five seats in the house and we broke even in the senate. but what is happening here is that the republican party actually had this same opportunity in 2010 and 2012 and they nominated candidates that were too far to the right and lost some races they shouldn't have lost that happened in missouri and in indiana and in this last election it happened in delaware and colorado and nevada two years before that we will have to see what happens. if the republican party keeps nominating people too far to the right, they may snatch defeat out of jaws of victory once again. >> interesting you brought up t
, george w. bush. another poll shows since president obama was re-elected, just a third of voters think he has been more bipartisan. but the majority, 55% say he's been more confrontational. does this mean nothing can really get done that's meaningful in washington to solve our nation's national debt and help the economy? we have a former white house political director under president george w. bush and a former chief of staff to west virginia senator joe mansion. >> great to be here. >> eric: matt, let me start with you. how do we get here? >> well, you know, i think about the president i served, george w. bush. when he came to office, he really was concerned about trying to if i understand a way to reach across the aisle because clearly bill clinton left the presidency with high numbers. he worked with ted kennedy. he worked with democrats and signature domestic policy issues and then 9/11 happened and the wars occurred. really, the nation polarized again, right versus left. i don't think we have come out of that. obama inherited that. but he talked about bridging that and governing in a
in democracies, sometimes you win elections and lose elections. i worked very hard, but i lost. >> if we had a clinton presidency, i think we would have fixed this fiscal mess by now. that's not the kind of presidency we're dealing with right now. >> paul ryan was referring to former president bill clinton. as for hillary, her favorability rating is 67%, compared to vice president joe biden, the other potential democrat candidate. his favorability rating at 48%. >>> immigration reform is getting attention this week in a bipartisan group of senators is ready to unveil its new plan. the so-called group of eight unveiled today include the pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants now in the united states. the lawmakers also want enhanced border security. the president's plan is introduced tomorrow. >>> undocumented immigrants can now apply for a driver's license in illinois. governor pat quinn signed the new law into effect yesterday. in order to get a license, undocumented immigrants would have to take a driving test and carry car insurance. illinois is the fourth and most populous st
they're worried about their elections. i think that in the center of the country and the red states where these senators are running, they don't think that the president's message works, and they're going to try to move themselves away from that because they're worried about it. they're worried about all these -- >> we're talking about the majority of the country though. if the majority is with the president, is he too liberal? that's what i'm asking. can you call the guy too left when he's right where the middle is? how can you keep saying that? it's the only question i want to put to you. if more than 50% support equality of marriage, more than 50% support a woman's right to choose, if more than 50% are with him on guns and foreign policy, how can you call that the far left? >> let me put it this way, the fact of the matter is this is going to be politically very problematic for harry reid because for the constituency he represents in the senate, they're not going to be able to get a lot of things that the president wants done because it's too far to the left of him. for example,
of the services of senators and representatives shall take effect until the elected representatives shall have intervened. this varies their compensation. and i just want to play this video, we have to do this. of what john boehner said about their respect for the constitution. the new respect for the constitution that they were bringing to the house of representatives when they took over in 2011. let's listen to this. >> i mean, gone on the days when the constitution will be ignored. in this congress, there will be clear constitutional authority required, when members file bills. >> remember that, ezra, they were supposed to file their bill and constitutional memo, saying why the thing was constitutional. >> i do remember that, i went back to look to see if there was one, now i wish i had. you mentioned the point of the budget resolutions that both have to pass. there were two interesting things, one saying both democrats or republicans have to pass a one-page bill. but it is true the senate democrats haven't passed a full budget since 2009. they argue that the 2011 budget -- i'm sorry, budge
super bowl and mardi gras and a costume. >> chris christie want to be re-elected. he's the republican. what do you make of this? >> i think it's an interesting dynamic. most people think of silicon valley with the democratic party but often times you see someone who has lived in a state who support the guy who is doing a good job. i think it's a good sign for dom governor christie. >> i don't think it's a good sign. i think it's a great sign. you have mark zuckerberg and trying to get re-elected. >> wolf f. i know he's married but he can friend me. i'll be very friendly to mark. friend me. >> guys, thanks very much. >> thank you. >>> manti te'o is not alone. an apparent hoax involving football players from the washington redskins.

thought the rest of the u.s. >> the republican party who is elected to control the congress the same time as obama was elected are going to cross their arms and they are not going to raise the debt ceiling ultimately unless they get severe spending cuts and the obama administration is not going to give it to them. and you are going to watch the u.s. do crazy, crazy things this year. >> if you are right on those crazy, crazy things, then the rest of us are in for a dreadful, dread full time? >> dreadful. it is going to be so strange for the richest country on earth to cross their arms and say i'm not paying. imagine crossing your arms. you are going to see it this year. >> reporter: now, we have been asking our guests here for the riskometer. on this side we have is the u.s. a bigger threat to global growth in 2013. on this side the e.u. lutnic thinks the u.s. is by far the bigger. as you look overall most people still seem to believe europe is the biggest threat in 2013. by the way, speet tweet me wher think the biggest threat is. >> very official looking. did you make that yourself? >> d
elections. when they're not winning elections, what are they going to do? they're either going to try to reach out to voters by having more progressive policies or they're going to try to cheat. it looks like they're going hard for the cheating. bobby jindal, of course, we'll be talking to rude pundit in a minute. he went before the rnc last week. had a blunt message for his fellow conservatives. he said we have to stop being the stupid party. >> good for him. >> john: we've had enough of that. you're right jacki. however, is bobby jindal the messenger for that? because he said we have the offensive and bizarre comments. he's talking about mourdock and akin. the guys opposed to abortion even in case of rape and incest. guess where jindal stands? he's saying it is okay to have the views, just don't say them out loud. >> which doesn't serve the republican party very well. >> john: it doesn't. bobby jindal calling the rest of them stupid. he once wrote in the objection fert review about how he participated in a friend's exorcism. he was opposed to t.a.r.p. and took payments anyway. >> i
. >> in politics and in democracy, sometimes you win elections, sometimes you lose elections. i worked very hard, but i lost. >> clinton, whose term as secretary of state ends this coming friday, refused to answer any questions about her political future and no outright night about 2016. >>> the ice storm that's made a mess out of the middle of the country is moving east just in time for the morning rush hour. yesterday, conditions were a mess as a mixture of ice, snow and freezing rain made travel treacherous in illinois and iowa. a section of interstate 35 was closed for hours because of a major accident. >>> parts of wisconsin got slammed with up to a foot of snow. drivers took precautions on sunday as temps warm up today. freezing rain could coat all the snow and turn to slush with meltdown in the 40s expected. >>> airline travelers and morning commuters could face some more hassles today. >> meteorologist jim dicky is tracking it all. >> good morning. a pattern change underway. we're watching warmth stream its way into the eastern half of the country, already quite warm today across the pla
with the election of abi who wants to finally get japan out of what's close to two decades of what you might call a lost period of time. and he's come forth, as you know, with this new stimulus package which is equivalent to 116 billion u.s., 10 trillion yen, 2.2% of gdp. a lot of that would go for infrastructure, a lot to the north for earthquake area. but, of course, we've seen 14 such packages since the late 1990s. and this one has to be different. and also he's pressing the bank of japan. of last time i was here was to -- last time i was here was to introduce governor shirakawa several years ago who i think is a very good governor of one of the major central banks in the world, pressing him to put in more monetary stimulus which i think is necessary. but i, one of the points that was made right in this room several years ago by the governor, and i've been with him three times in the last two months, is, you know, monetary and fiscal stimulus aren't enough. in the case of japan, you need major deregulation. i think major structural reforms, deregulation in the service area. so hopefully that'l
honorable friend he was in that referendum was very much part of his manifesto of the last election. [shouting] >> in the interest of harmony i think we'll leave that to one side. >> mr. speaker, a constituent of mine with a chronic medical condition tells me that he is just 20 pounds a week to spend on food and clothing after paying his utility bills, and after april after the welfare cuts in april, he will just have to pounds a day. if the prime minister police we're all in it together, with the agreed to review the impact on the very poorest of the welfare cuts so that my constituents sacrifices are in line with his own? >> i will look very close to what the honorable gentleman says and the circumstances. let me just make the point, if you compare 2013 with 2010 in terms of the level of key benefits, it is worth making this point. and unemployed person on jobseeker's allowance is getting 325 pounds more this year than in 2010. a couple jobseeker's allowance, 500 pounds more. a single out of work mother, 420 pounds more to do with the opposition try and do, week after week, is som
? paul ryan was the guy who lost the last election because most americans didn't like his budget ideas in the first place. but now ryan claims voters actually didn't reject republican principles. ryan told "the wall street journal" we have to do a better job of explaining why we think our ideas are better for everybody and why they're better for fighting poverty. paul ryan wants us to believe that he can fight poverty, pay off the debt and balance the budget in a new number, now ten years. do you believe that? i got some swampland for you down in florida if you do. let's do some quick math here. analysts say ryan will have to cut about $800 billion in federal spending, including defense. that's 22% of the federal budget. so ryan would have to cut spending by one-fifth in ten years. those cuts go way beyond anything paul ryan suggested during the campaign. his old plan balanced the budget in 30 years. but he still wanted to cut programs for the poor by 62%. ryan's old budget would have slashed federal medicaid funding by almost a third. paul ryan's new budget plan will have to be leaner
this. there'll be elections in italy and we will see how we does. but you need popular mandates to get changes really through. i'm encouraged with the ireland. they're making good progress getting back to the market but there's still a lot of problems. the latest victim is cyprus. the banks held a lot of greek paper. they ran up the deficit there, and so they are the latest bailout case that we are going to see. that each country is different, and that leads to what is the same, and that's contagion. europeans did not want to see that there was contagion at the time of greece. and no matter who you talk to with a few i think exceptions, policymakers, they thought they would be no contagion out of greece in 2010. well, we know there's been plenty of contagion. the minister of finance of germany an made a statement to a group of us in tokyo at the imf meetings there a couple months ago. when he was asked what was the biggest mistake you made so far in the european debt crisis, and he said we did not understand and did not accept the idea of contagion. and boy, europe has paid for that co
and it was kind of a thank you smooch to bill clinton, because bill played such a big role in obama's re-election. >> it was quite the love fest. their body language, they were leaning in. >> tickling each other. >> i don't think we would have ever, ever thought we would see something like that during the primaries. they were at each other's throats. >> it was rough. >> all of those sort of caught conversations that we heard with bill clinton, you know, just talking so badly about barack obama. and now it's a love fest. >> it is. we'll see. a prelude to 2016, perhaps. we'll see. again, i want to get back to this immigration point. this is a major issue. we heard about this during the bush term but didn't come to fruition. obama promised in 2008 but didn't get to it. and one of the gang of eight said first american supported in poll after poll. secondly, latino voters expect it. thirdly, democrats want it. and fourth, republicans need it. so an interesting analysis of why it's coming to a head. >> the gang of eight, i love that they're calling them the gang of eight. >> their plan will be announce
would never see eye to eye, but the presidential election appears to have changed that, and now a bipartisan group of eight senators is poised to announce their plan today. illinois democrat dick durbin is one of those senators. he says the stars have finally aligned on this major issue. >> we have virtually been going for maybe 25 years without a clear statement about immigration policy. that's unacceptable in this nation of immigrants. >> the plan laid out in this five-page documents put together by gang of eight senators would overhaul the immigration system. the plan includes a pathway to citizenship for the roughly 11 million immigrants already in the country. it would require those with no serious criminal background to register with the government, pay a fine and back taxes, but not before federal authorities put more unmanned drones and agents along the border. the plan also includes a guest worker program that loosens restrictions for people who work in the agricultural industry as well as their children. robert mendez helped draft the bill. >> first of all they expect
? >> reporter: first it comes during an important window of opportunity before the midterm elections of 2014 get underway, before all the campaigning gets underway. it comes just after president obama was reelected partly because of the strong support of latinos, the fastest growing minority group in the u.s. senator john mccain acknowledged that reality yesterday. >> give you a little straight talk. look at the last election. look at the last election. we are lose drag mat i canly the hispanic vote which we think should be ours for a variety of reasons and we've got to understand that. >> reporter: so, a senate bill on immigration reform could be debated this spring. we'll see how that goes, bill. bill: thank you, steve. steve centanni in washington. martha has a bit more. martha: lawmakers of course made the round on the sunday talk shows and they expressed their support for the deal. here is some of that. >> cautiously optimistic. someone who spent years between the house and the senate trying to comprehensive immigration reform i'm cautiously optimistic. i see the right spirit. i see things
her outburst is not an outburst. it's a re-election flection of l think about this. if you were going to be real about these issues you would be asking what can we do to beef up the security. something gop members have already cut, you know, and they have decisions to cut it now in these days as we're speaking. it's rank hypocrisy. i think it's a fresh breath of air that people -- >> i agree with you about the hypocrisy because i remember 9/11 very clearly and i remember how this country rallied around a president who had limited ability but we all rallied around him. the first reaction was he says we're going to get the people who knocked down this building and everybody cheered him. they weren't saying how did you screw it up buddy. it was about unit. the left and center are much better at national unity than the right. the right sees a national tragedy like this far off in bengha benghazi, not in new york city, at a very exposed position which could have happened no matter how many troops he would there. we don't blame it on everybody even know it was new york right into the heart
and democracy sometimes you win elections sometimes you lose elections. i work very hard but i lost and then president obama asked me to be secretary of state and i said yes. >> clinton's last day as secretary of state is this friday february 1st. >> the deep freeze across the country is turning more dangerous as the winter storm hits the midwest hard. in eastern iowa the ice is coating roads sending dozens of cars right off. >> in wisconsin you can see the thick snow is falling making it hard for drivers to see and navigate the streets. let's check in with maria molina. she is tracking the storm as it moves east. >> the storm not over with just yet heading out over the northeast. already producing snow across pennsylvania and new york. even freezing rain across mid atlantic early this morning expecting it to be producing travel headaches. there is a little bit of warm air behind it. you will be seeing above that winter weather over to rains across most of the northeast including places like new york city and philadelphia and mid atlantic. we have winter weather advisories in effect
protection program with ever -- whenever budget issues come up. twenty democrats are up for election in 2014. half of them should not be coming back of the continue to vote with obama on tax and spend crazy debt policies which is what they have been doing. i think it is very important for the american people to see what the senate has not done and to force them to act but that. gerri: you sure can't act -- argue with that. the senate has not passed a budget and 1,361 days. let me get a comment. it would stop pay to members of congress if they don't do some of these things, if they don't get a budget resolution. you in favor of that? >> i think it's a good idea for two reasons. senators have not been doing democratic leaders have not been doing their job for a long time. they should not get paid. if they're not willing to do it, the senate should vote them out of positions. also, it gives the attention of average americans who don't know if they have been watching the establishment press that the senate has no passed a budget. they don't know that the president has never gotten a budget in on
that turned out to be push for innovation no a presidential debate and i think had a bearing on this election. basically they interviewed president obama on september 129, the day after the benghazi attacks and the president said and i think i'm quoting it's too early to tell whether or not this is terror related. this became a real issue in the campaign, when the president retroactively said no i always described it as a terror attack. "60 minutes" had that footage and they did not air it at the time. they did not air it when the debate broke out when the president this a terror attack. they withheld that from the public. i would say that's a direct violation of your duty as a journalist. >> maybe that's why they like going on there. >> alisyn: president obama has said that he likes the format of "60 minutes" he can give longer nuances answers rather than up against a three-minute break. what they are doing is sunday night is very interesting. sitting down with hillary clinton, secretary of state and president obama in first and only joint interview. why would they do that? let's listen to t
if the election were held today, and that was the only way we could survive hearing that that many times and i said if my aunt had a [ censor bleep ] she would be my uncle. jim here is a fun fact for you. >> yes? >> stephanie: the historic warner theater. and i was reading kirk douglas' book on the plane, and spartacus opened at the warner theater. >> oh wow. >> kind of a random book to read on a plane. >> stephanie: listen kirk douglas watches and think i'm [ inaudible ]. >> okay. >> stephanie: and he signed the book to me and he said -- >> i'm spartacus. >> stephanie: he thinks i'm beautiful and then when david told him i'm gay he said what! [♪ dramatic music ♪] >> stephanie: he signed my book to a beautiful girl who is also smart. >> okay. >> stephanie: i think it was one anecdote about the warner theater. >> very cool. >> stephanie: also here is another fun fact. alan grayson who was our celebrity on panel. he got a standing ovation for walking and sitting when he was in the theater, so did jfk. and the guy he was with said they are applauding you even in the dark. >
this as a leverage in wake of the election which hispanic and latino voters were favoring democrats, not so in the case of republicans. the g.o.p. recognizes they need to do something. democrats are saying they you will not play political football. >> we do not want immigration as a wedge issue. much rather we want a bipartisan bill that soxes the problem and becomes law. >> they put their marking on it today and the president will lay out his proposals. the senate majority leader, harry reid, before the news conference announcing the plan came out, said the so-called gang of eight proposal would be a major, major priority and will get it on the senate floor and pass it as soon as possible perhaps by spring. so a lot of momentum. we have not heard from the president and house republicans who control that side of the capitol who will have their say on border security and how to get there. it is always a major fight. >>shepard: thank you. the gang of eight is taking questions. that is when we find out the details. we will listen to the questions. here is john mccain. >> as i have stated befor
was elected a second time. that has to be another step in the right direction. >> you're absolutely right. at my age, i never thought that i would live to see this. and it has been such a blessing to me to have seen this. the only thing i wish, i kind of wish my mother had been around to see something as great as this. it made a great change in washington, d.c. and the country, period, because people have changed their idea of what can happen. i can go to my grandson now who's ten years old and i can say listen, you can be the. of the until. that's -- the president of the united states. that's a great thing. >> that's a great thing for any child to know there's that potential. but there are still some things that have not been realized in the first administration for people of color, black americans, other minorities. what do you want him to focus on in the second term? >> i want him to continue to focus on health care. i want him to continue to focus on social security for senior citizens. i want him to focus on education for our young people. >> on that note about social security, entit
is the iron hotter now than it was five, six years ago? >> reporter: the november election. it is as simple as that. republicans knew immediately when they saw the election results. not only that, the overall electorate was much more latino, 16%. but that mitt romney did worse than any republican candidate had done in three or four presidential elections. it was just terrible news for republicans. and they understood that. that is why lindsey graham, one of the republican senators who we will see momentarily placed a call to democrat chuck schumer and said let's get the ball rolling on this again. and i'm told that they had about five meetings, this group of bipartisan senators, six total, and they were -- now eight, too that came in and out. and they wanted to come up with this. and, yes, of course, we have seen this before, but i'm talking to sources on both sides, they say there is still a lot left undone, left on the table, but very, very sticky issues like with border security, like with the path to citizenship, but there definitely is a feeling they're closer now than they have been i
